The Postal Department has introduced a new service to facilitate its public services.
The transport of goods of the postal service of the Ratnapura District with the intention of providing an immediate service to the public commenced at the main Post Office. The new programme has been unveiled with the purpose of expanding the limitations which hitherto existed in the postal service. Accordingly, the express post service which was hitherto limited only to Colombo and Galle is now in operation in the Ratnapura District. Joining in this function Minister W.D.J. Seneviratne referred to their intention to implement this programme in all other districts before the end of this year. Many officials were present.
